Worth knowing the story as it was seal meat that saved the population from starvation during WW2. Not nice meat but it will save you when starving.

The story behind this monument reminds us about the horror of war. The seal saved human lives. A very interesting, unusual and touching monument.

The seal is very cute. But the words... "thank you for being tasty". Yes, we are thankful to the creatures that save you during a war time. BUt it is a bit weird to tell them directly about it. I should say i like it...More

A good place for walking arround and live the magnificent sunset over the Dvina. The Arkhangelsk Embarkment deserves a stroll while learning the centuries of history of the very first port in Russia.

Cool monument to seals for having saved the city from starvation during WW 2! Unusual to have a monument in such a prominent place to an animal!
